Last week was a whirlwind of goodness – stemming from ILTA’s 36th Annual Educational Conference held in Las Vegas.  There were several key note presentations to stir the mind, ample sessions packed with information and statistics daily, and networking ongoing throughout the conference.

All in all, the conference earned just shy of 5,000 updates on Twitter tied to the hash tag #ILTA13.  ILTA has uploaded the slides to many of the presentations online already, and audio recordings of sessions will soon to be available for ILTA members (there are also about 1,000 photos ITLA posted to Flickr here).
